When it comes to most things in life, prevention is really the best solution to any problem. This is a statement that especially rings true when it comes to a termite infestation. Trying to eliminate termites from your Hawaiian property and repair the damages that they have caused is much more costly and time-consuming than just taking the time to put in place preventative measures now! Trust us. Here at Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions, we know termites, and we know just how costly their damages can be!
In Hawaii, we have two different species of termites that we need to protect our properties from: ground termites (subterranean termites) and drywood termites. Both are hard workers and the warm, humid weather found in Hawaii allows them to work 24/7 all year long. Both species eat wood, but different types of wood. Ground termites prefer to attack structural wood and timbers that have been previously damaged by water; while drywood termites prefer to feed on sound wood like furniture, beams, and wooden railings.
The damages that either species of termite cause can be quite extensive; and in most cases, termite damages look as if water damage has occurred. With large termite infestations there tends to be an odor in the air similar to when mold or mildew is present. Termite damages can include areas of buckling wood, furniture that is riddled with tiny holes, uneven floors, drooping ceilings, and sagging doorways.
At Sandwich Isle Pest Solutions we take great pride in being able to offer all of our customers the services needed to help prevent termites from invading and causing costly damages within your Hawaiian property. To prevent a ground termite infestation we highly recommend the installation of the eco-friendly and 100% effective Sentricon® System with Always Active™. Sentricon® with Always Active™ involves discreetly installing bait stations on your property that contain small amounts of a highly effective bait that provides a very effective barrier between your home and any foraging termites.
To help prevent issues with drywood termites we recommend having regular termite inspections performed by our termite specialists so that they can find and treat any infestation in its beginning stage before any major or costly damage is done!
